Answer Key : (a) -

(a)

Prophase-I is the longest stage in the first division of meiosis and is divided into a number of substages. The chronological sequence is leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, diplotene and diakinesis.

The characteristic phenomenon during pachytene is the exchange of chromosomal segments, i.e., the recombination of gene or crossing over
